In this paper I seek to interpret, categorise conspiracy theories in relation to urban lore/legends with a paranoid matrix, with the starting point being mainly the interpretation of the paranoid nature of conspiracy theories systematised by Jack Z. Bratich. As one of the examples, I specify the conspiracy theory/ies on the disappearance of flight MH370, which has been declared one of the greatest airplane mysteries of all time. Specifically, Boeing 777 (Malaysia Airlines Flight 370) with 227 passengers and 12 crew members disappeared on March 8, 2014 during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. According to the official story, it is believed that the airplane fell into the Indian Ocean, off the west coast of Australia. However, the conspiracy theories indicate their own interpretative truths.
